I went home for the weekend and forgot my pills so after realizing I refilled my perscription and just took the pills I was missing. Then later in the month I thought I had missed a day so I took two pills and later realized that I didnt miss it. So now I am missing a pill for next months round of pills and I just want to know if I am still able to be sexually active even though I am a pill short. Are my odds of getting pregnant greater now without that one white pill?
You will have to treat it like a missed pill and use back up CONDOMS until you have taken seven consecutive days of active pills in the next pack. It increases chance for pregnancy.
The last 7 pills in every BC pack are sugar pills. They have nothing to do with hormones or preventing a pregnancy. They're always a different color than the others. So if you missed one of those-NO worries-I don't even take them, I never have. I have missed more than 3 pills, like too many to just take the 1 you missed the next day!! I haven't gotten pregnant even missing some now & then. I've also never taken them at the same time every day, they work no matter what time you take them! But like everyone says & it always keeps the fear in you... "there's always that chance you could be... " ;) I think as long as you're pretty normal with them one or two slip ups with missing isnt going to matter. You have to consider when you're ovulating & all of those other factors..very tiny chance to none that you'd get pregnant from missing a few & then getting normal again.
